This brand-new e-learning course has been developed to support leaders in schools to identify and tackle sexual harassment and harmful sexual behaviours in their settings through a whole school approach.
“School and college leaders should create a culture where sexual harassment and online sexual abuse are not tolerated, and where they identify issues and intervene early. In order to do this, they should assume that sexual harassment and online sexual abuse are happening in their setting, even when there are no specific reports, and put in place a whole-school approach to address them.”
Ofsted, June 2022
Following the rapid review into sexual harassment and violence, Ofsted will be inspecting your school on its approach to sexual harassment and harmful sexual behaviours. It is vital that you are taking a pre-emptive approach to tackle the increasing prevalence of such behaviours. As the impact of influencers such as Andrew Tate continue to be felt, there has never been a better time to ensure your staff training is up to date.
